Week 59 Monday (2/22/15)

What the Beck?

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Red Velvet Pancakes        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
         Pages: 51 - 53      Copyright:  2013  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 212 calories per serving, if 20 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         These are really fun to make. They are made with cake flour instead of a pancake mix. The recipe is easy to create and tastes great. This recipe uses a Maple Buttermilk Icing instead of a syrup. I am personally not a big fan of really sweet breakfasts, but I can see that it would be a real favorite of children everywhere.

First, I mixed the dry ingredients

Here are the wet ones

The next step was to add the
wet to the dry ingredients

Here is the food coloring

The final item to create is the
Maple Buttermilk Icing

I just love it when the bubbles form

Wants and Wishes

         I was sitting here thinking about what I want and I realized that I want to successfully finish cooking Ree’s recipes.  I am about halfway through the last book, but there are also so many recipes to cook from her blog. I am really enjoying the cooking and reviewing her recipes. When I take on a challenge such as cooking her recipes, I will make sure I achieve that goal. I am feeling really good about how much I have already done, but I still have a ways to go. At least this is really fun.
